Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts, by Karisma, Serves Up Just the Right Mix!

Perfecting a Balancing Act


Themed hotel destinations done right requires balance. Sweet must be tempered with savory, earthiness accented with bright acids, and hot spice chased down with something cool.


Perhaps it’s the Gourmet Inclusive® roots of the Nickelodeon Hotel & Resort Punta Cana that then makes it such a wonderfully well-balanced choice for families, dishing up just the right proportions of cartoon fun and commendable luxury. Both brands—Nickelodeon and Karisma—are equally represented in the details for a sampler platter of everything a family vacation can be.


Accommodations at this all-suite resort include Pad, Flat, and Swank Suites, but don’t let the whimsy fool you. These spacious digs come complete with touches like freestanding tubs, rain showerheads, and amenities even for their smallest guests, from baby food, strollers, cribs, and bottle warmers to mini-me-sized robes and adorable tangerine blimps/footrests sprinkled about as muted reminders of the network’s lighthearted presence.


However, the crème de la crème category is The Pineapple, a villa inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants’ underwater abode. This two-bedroom, three-bathroom, 1,500-square-foot Bikini Bottom address is laid-back luxury to the max, with private butler service, full dining room and play area, a private infinity pool, hanging bubble chair, and second-story loft.


Continuing that theme of decadence is Karisma’s signature Gourmet Inclusive® service and, of course, the cuisine. Eleven restaurants with styles as accessible as Sicilian and innovative as “interstellar” also include artisan burgers and casual light bites outdoors with favorite characters. Yet two bars serving premium drinks and the adults-only Kitchen 23 by Le Chique – Cuisine D’auteur will have you forgetting you’re at a kid-centric resort.


In case some reminding is in order, though, all the seriousness of ultra-fine dining is once again balanced … by ways to burn it off.


“It’s slime o’clock somewhere” at this resort no matter the time of day. Find excitement at Nickelodeon Place, where the orange carpet is rolled out for the whole family, or Just Kidding, a clubhouse that also offers supervised programs for kids ages 4 – 12. It’s a fantastic place for them to make friends, as are the Sports Hub and Aqua Nick’s water slides, splash pods, spray grounds, and lazy river … but the pals they’ll remember best will be found during character breakfasts or at Character Central, where SpongeBob, Dora the Explorer, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and PAW Patrol stars make their home base.


Thanks to this range of opportunities and the strolling size of the resort, the interactions and activities can encompass as little or as much as the family wants; here, guests are free to be the master chefs of their own Gourmet Inclusive® vacation. A sprinkle of this, a dash of that, and a heaping helping of upscale amenities with a big side of fun is the basic recipe. The perfect balance is entirely up to you.
